I have been wanting to paint on a large canvas. Yet every time I would consider it I (FEAR) would talk myself out of it. All my reasons seemed legitimate... how do I begin? - what do I paint? - these are so expensive to not know what I am doing. - I would be wasting my money, so on and son on. I'm sure you have experienced this negative self talk when you start something new. Haven't you?
I have been in the mindset to bust thru resistance ever since I watched an interview, a couple weeks ago, with Steven Pressfield on Super Soul Sunday. I understand how resistance had held me captive and I am inspired to know that I no longer need to place judgement on myself. All I have to do is push thru resistance.
Anyway... last night I decided to go to Michael's a purchase a larger canvas. Much to my surprise one of their Daily Deals was 60% off all canvases. I am smiling. Why? Because I, also, had a coupon on my iPhone that was for 25% off my entire purchase, including sale items. YES that means I was going to get 85% off my canvas. I couldn't control myself any longer. I did the Happy Dance right there in the aisle at Michaels!!!
Needless to say, I walked out of Michaels with 8 large canvases. I am so frickin' excited to paint on the canvases that I can hardly contain myself. Stay tuned because I will definitely share with you what I create.
